Multicultural Resources and Support

Wellness, like so many aspects of our lives, is inextricably informed by intersectional identities. The marginalization and racial injustice of people of color affects numerous health disparities, and as such racism is a public health issue we must confront.

We firmly believe that centering Black, Indigenous and People of Color’s (BIPOC) voices is central to creating safe and inclusive healthcare. We know that the work of racial justice requires a steadfast approach, and caring for ourselves to prevent burnout and maintain momentum is indeed a revolutionary act. We will continue to update the resources below and we hope they are helpful to you; should you have a resource you think would be appropriate, please email us at studentwellness@wellesley.edu
 
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde
